Carla Verenzuela – Beam Suntory
Born in California and raised in Venezuela, Carla Verenzuela gained a taste for travel at a very young age, moving to Barcelona in 2008. Two years later she headed to New York to develop a career in fine arts, focused in jewellery design.
While in New York City, Verenzuela worked as a bartender at an agave bar, ultimately falling in love with Tequila.
Over the past nine years, she helped raise the profile of Casa Dragones and Don Julio Tequilas, and is now part of El Tesoro de Don Felipe’s team in her home market of New York and across the east coast. She acts as brand ambassador for Tequila at Beam Suntory.
